Intel confirms a major reshuffle of its top-level executives. Sean Maloney and Dadi Perlmutter will lead the new Intel Architecture Group, while former CTO Pat Gelsinger is leaving.
Pat Gelsinger, a thirty year veteran, currently in charge of the enterprise division, is said to be going to storage and virtualization company EMC.
Dadi Perlmutter, who led Intel Israel and has a good claim to have saved the company with his focus on low-power computing, will be in charge of engineering across Intel's chip divisons, while sales chief Sean Maloney gets put in overall charge of silicon.
More as we get it - and no prizes for guessing what the big topic will be at the Intel Developer Forum next week.
